All we ever wanted and more
By Vernon Bevill on
2009 Honda CR-V LX 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Wife wrecked her 03 PT Cruiser in January, so we car shopped 3 yrs sooner than planned. After research between a Toyota Rav4 & Honda CR-V. Test drove both, especially at night for low beam headlamps in deer country. Both tested well but felt the Honda was a bit better in comfort & mileage and details for the money. Several customers said the service at this dealership was great. We have been getting 24.8 in the commute/town driving and the one road trip of 360 miles I got 29.8 doing around 70. We loved the Cruiser, but already like this one better. It is roomy and well built and has all the appointments needed. Arm rests & visors could be wider, but that's all we see needed after 3 mo.
Great mileage, comfort of ride, visibility, feel sturdy, and standard features seem to be a bit more than on most vehicles. Like the rubber tray in the rear compartment for catching spills. We are over 60 and getting in and out is real easy, and lots of cargo room.
Bigger wider arm rests on front seats, and visors that have extenders to cover more sun up. Would like a thermometer to give outside temperature and a compass.
